12 Days of Christmas - Day TWO

On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me....
His Christmas Bonus (haha), seriously he did!
Now I'm ready to be apart of....

I've NEVER participated in Black Friday!  I'm not the shopper who likes lines or looking through a pile of mess. I'm a run in, run out, I want what the manikin is wearing kinda shopper! But... My boss gave me the day off [it's a working day for the company I work for], so I figured I'd try it out. I don't see myself shopping ALL day, because I'm sure I'll get overwhelmed. But, who knows...
I've never been! I don't know the tricks or deals.. yet! I was just told to wear comfy clothes and shoes.
I've already looked up a few places I want to go; We are starting off at Bass Pro Shop.
They open at 6:00AM so we are leaving the house [30 minute drive] at 5:00AM.
I don't really know where to go from there... We will see!

Here's my Christmas [check] List -
Maybe I'll get lucky and get everyone out of the way... HA!

BF shopping is so fun, even if I'm only out to people watch and grab a few deals here and there. Good luck to you! Looks like you have lots of people to buy for, hope you get the good deals!

Good luck with your Black Friday shopping! :) ....our parents and grandparents are tricky too. This year we're kinda cheating. We're taking new family photos, and that's what they are all getting!

I would advise to try to stay out of Target and WalMart until later in the day. the people who go there first thing get a tad bit crazy!!
Have fun on your first Black Friday shopping day! I never stay out all day, I get burnt out quick especially if people get grumpy!

Molly said...

Can't wait to hear what you think of black friday shopping, I LOVE it! Seriously!

I'd leave a little earlier if you're going after something that is a great deal.
